Julius Malema is not interested in Numsa if they're not interested in him, and won't let sequestration slow down a "black cat with many lives".

"All it means they will have less of a majority than they did last time."

I really hope it will be nothing more than 55%, and I really really hope, they won't loose too many votes to the EFF. Our youth really need to think about this one.

I spent time at Numsa's political school and left impressed. Read about how the real re-alignment of SA politics is taking place beyond the headlines.

My column today: an inside peak at the DA's recent policy conference and what it means for the party.

Respected analyst, author and talk show host Eusebius McKaiser, who is writing a book on the DA, will appear on our hangout with the party's parliamentary leader and young star to talk about the DA's bungling over a BEE bill and where to from here. Join us!

My column today: something I've been thinking about for some time - how the good news obsession of our ANC-led government is actually costing us lives.
